I sew, but not as often as I'd like. Which is to say, I know how to sew.
Now, my mother? She sews. If a day goes by and she hasn't sat down at her sewing machine it means she's either sick or not at home.
When I finish a spool of thread, I get a sense of accomplishment because I know how many stitches the average spool represents.
When my mom finishes a spool of thread - well, she just adds it to the pile:
Like I said - my mom sews. No two ways about it.
